About us

Designed to Work. Designed to Wow – Our designs do both. Through a strong understanding of design which achieves both form and function, we can deliver outstanding and intelligent designs to suit any budget. Whether you are looking for contemporary or traditional, innovative or practical, we can realise your dream.

Since opening our doors in 2008, with a workforce of two, Designa has developed into one of Dorset’s most reputable, family run businesses, with two stunning showrooms and a growing team of talented individuals. Our pride reflects in everything we do, from your initial design consultation, throughout the installation process, to our after-care support.

When embarking on your Home Improvements, make sure you get at least three quotes, and always make sure one of them is from Designa.

Our time is yours.


Russell Sandrey

With over 30 years’ experience, Russell, our director and chief designer, has a plethora of knowledge under his belt, making him one of the most respected designers in Dorset. His “no nonsense” attitude ensures that every member of the team works with the same finesse as himself, to guarantee a high level of work in everything we do. The big cheese!

Abigail Sandrey
Design & Sales

Following in her father’s footsteps, Abi joins her Dad to complete our design team. Since joining the family business in 2014, she’s already gained a lot of useful experience and knowledge, which will prove valuable for years to come. Her designs reflect her naturally creative flare, offering her a promising career. A chip off the old block!

Mark Sandrey
Installation Manager

Son-in-law no.1, Mark a.k.a. Stretch, has been with Designa since the start. He leads our installation team, ensuring that all projects run as smoothly and efficiently as possible, whilst encouraging our fitters and imparting priceless knowledge and experience. Continually proving his mastery of our trade, there’s not much that Stretch can’t do, making him an irreplaceable part of the business. He’s part of the furniture!

Adam Anstey

Son-in-law no.2, Adam, joined Designa as an apprentice back in 2010. Since successfully completing his course, he’s proved himself to be an essential part of the team, with a growing set of skills. With an eagerness to continue learning, Adam works hard to make his work the best it can be, already setting himself high above the typical fitter. His on-site singing skills aren’t bad either!

Kevin Welch

Kev joined our team in December 2017, bringing with him over 30 years of experience in the trade. Passion and pride – Kev genuinely loves what he does, which shows in all of his work. We don’t only value his outstanding level of work; his silly sense of humour and ever-present smile brightens up the whole office, making him a pleasure to work with. A true craftsman.

Chris Legg

Chris a.k.a. Leggy, is the newest member of our impressive team. He also brings with him a very high level of long term experience, adding to our extensive skill set. His clean and professional work style, and his banter with the team make him an easy addition to the business. The best team just got better!
